by Robin Downes.
The doorway is of heavy and crude construction in red sandstone, protected by a later porch. It has a single, continuous chamfered order with a segmental head. There are non-projecting impost blocks, and the arch head is made of a lintel or tympanum with segmentally curved lower edge, and a round-headed relieving arch flush with the wall above it. The lintel is not semicircular, and the space between the top of it and the relieving arch is filled with irregularly coursed rubble. Inside, the rere-arch is of a single, unmoulded round-headed order.
